Cherry Hill Fountain, Central Park

Cherry Hill Fountain is a water fountain in New York City's Central Park. It is located just to the west of Bethesda Fountain, enclosed in a circular plaza in Cherry Hill.

Designed by Jacob Wrey Mould, this ornamental structure was originally designed as a watering trough for horses during the 19th century. The fountain consists of a granite dome and sculpted bluestone basin inset with Minton tiles. Crowning this 14-foot high tower are eight frosted round glass lamps and a golden spire.

In 1998, the Central Park Conservancy, along with a gift from Elizabeth and Clement Moore, restored the fountain back to an operable state.
